December 2014 Newsletter

Informal talks have been held with students at the High School in support of their Great War theme week of lectures.

The car park at the Centre has been tarmaced and ready for use by members. Many thanks to Carillion for support as part of their Community Engagement program and, also, to County Councillors Mike Lawrence and Kath Perry for their support via the Local Community

Two of our books ‘Great Wyrley – Reflections Over The Years’ have been registered at the new City of Birmingham library. Following cataloguing, they will be available to members of the public to view and borrow.

An enquiry has been received asking if anyone can help with old pictures of 84 Walsall Road. We would appreciate any help and, in the first instance, please speak with Diane or Gary with your possible information. Many thanks.

A meeting is arranged with the County Museum in early January to identify some of our artefacts for possible transfer so they can be viewed by a wider range of audiences, as and when appropriate. Any such transfers are agreed in advance with the family in question.

The old original Greensill family records (some dating back nearly three centuries) have been catalogued and accepted by the County Record Office. They are now available for members of the public when requested by visitors to the County Record Office.

Finally, Complements of the season to all members and their families and we hope everyone can look forward to a happy and healthy 2015. Best wishes from us all.
